Barhobble Church Ruins


Just passed the pretty village of Elrig with it's street of vernacular buildings is a turn for the House of Elrig, (Gavin Maxwell was born and raised there, a childhood home and book) and Barhobble ruins.

Barhobble is a medieval ruin of a church/monastery that remained unknown until the 1980's and it's worth the short walk. On the Pilgrims Way it's associated with the nearby St Finians Chapel.

Crosses found at Barhobble are in the Whithorn Trust Museum.
